‘You are what you eat’, this is a popular quote that many of us know. How you eat and what you eat have an effect on your skin, from the inside out. This is very important for you to understand and take charge of what you eat on a daily basis to promote healthier and radiant skin.
Here is a list of the amazing foods you may want to consume to boost the glow and reduce acne breakouts on your skin.
1. Water – Hydrate your body and your skin
Our body consists of 50% – 75% water which is why it is the most important rule for us to drink enough water, so as to hydrate our body and help us in expelling toxins. Besides sustaining a healthy body, drinking plenty of water keeps your skin moist, making fine lines or wrinkles less noticeable, while improving blood flow to give you softer and brighter skin.
Replace your daily water intake with Fortune Delight® (choose your preferred flavour!) to cleanse, refresh and nourish your cells every day to promote healthy hydration with zero sugar, fat preservatives or artificial sweeteners.
2. Fruits and Vegetables – Protect against free radicals and aging skin
Top up on antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E and carotenoids from fruits and vegetables to protect your healthy cells from free radicals that can cause a lot of damage.
Take a vial of Vitafruit® daily to provide collagen-building nutrients to support your skin’s health and natural beauty. Vitafruit® 100% fruit-based super juice contains a good source of vitamins A, E and C from whole foods to enhance your body’s ability to absorb the herb-fruits for their health benefits.
3. Vitamin C – Reduce sun damage
The sun can have adverse effects on our skin and having ample Vitamin C support can give your skin the added protection it needs. Vitamin C has a high antioxidant level and contains the ability to reduce sun damage while firming your skin at the same time.
Get your daily dose of Vitamin C with Citric C™ Tab, specially made for superior absorption with a natural source of vitamin C and blends of herbs that include green tea extract and rose hips. Each tab contains 125mg of vitamin C, equivalent to 200% of the daily recommended value.
4. Nuts, seeds and oils – Reduce inflammation
When you consume more nuts, seeds, olives and vegetable oils, you are helping your skin fight sun damage and reduce inflammation with their Vitamin E properties. Fighting free radicals helps prevent signs of aging and you can simply do so by eating right!

5. Good Fats – Reduce dryness and acne
Not all fats are bad. Eat the good ones such as those from salmon, mackerel, olives, canola oil and flaxseeds. These contain Omega 3s and 6s which are good fats that make up your skin’s natural oil barrier. Increasing the amount of good fats in your diet will help reduce dryness and acne, leaving your skin naturally smoother and younger looking.
The better you eat, the better your entire body will function! This gives you a healthier, brighter and softer skin. Eating healthy and eating well is a lifestyle choice, try your best to include the above recommended foods and Sunrider supplements into your diet to increase your overall health and promote healthy skin from within.
